Bottle. I bought this in a 6 pack of Belgian beers, and I guess someone stuck the box I bought in a paint can shaker. The moment I popped the cap, it hissed as if hell was being released. Pouring it was a literal nightmare, as the head that frothed out of the Trappist glass was truly a sight to behold. Barely a quarter of the bottle made it into the glass before it began overflowing. I don’t know if it was overcarbonated or not, but it is really disappointing to get a beer in this condition. Body has a tart, tangy flavor, accentuated with a nice burnt straw coloured body. This would have been a good beer had I not had to wait for the head to slowly die off.

Rating from St Stefanus Blonde. This should be a different entry. different abv probably different beer altogether.
whatever alias or its called, this beer rocks. Pours lightly hazy orange hue with a nice bubbly white head and vigorous carbonation. Nose of noble hops, lite citrus, apples, flavors of nice grassy hops, lite citrus, spice. carbonation is heavy with lots of prickly action on the tongue which elevates the spice elements in the beer. FInish is long with lingering notes of brown sugar, apples, spicy hops and belgian yeast. Fantastic Belgian ale if you ask me. and its not a BSA.

Bottle. Bit spicy, bit tripel like, not hugely distinctive but it’s nice enough. Pear, some bitterness. Quite spritzy.

Pours clear amber with small white head. Aroma is esters, caramel, nuts, clove, raisin. Medium malty, light to medium bitter, fruity, somewhat sour short finish. Light to medium body, watery texture, average carbonation. Lacks depth and complexity.

Robe blonde dorée, mousse crémeuse moyenne. Nez épicé, grain moyen et houblon léger. Bullage fin. Bière ronde, douce, léger acidulé, épicée, levure présente. Petite amertume houblonnée en fin de bouche, courte. Bière blonde belge très (trop) classique.

Kolor miedziano pomara?czowy, klarowny. Piana wysoka drobno p?cherzykowa z kilkoma wi?kszymi b?blami, d?ugotrwa?a, pozostawia sporo zdobie?, w kolorze ecru.
Aromat owocowy, pomara?cze i brzoskwinie, dalej dro?d?e i siano.
Smak troch? gorzej, wyszed? alkohol, pó?niej do g?osu dochodz? owoce, ponownie siano i nuty dro?d?owe.
Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. Alkohol niestety wychodzi, a nie ma go zbyt wiele.
Uwagi: przyzwoity Blond, niestety alkohol psuje wszystko.
